DEAR WORLD

What is Dear World? 

          Dear World is an interactive, award-winning portrait project that explores the subtle and powerful connections between students, faculty and staff. Dear World was founded as a portrait project that unites people through pictures in their distinct message-on-skin style.

           Dear world has taken over 50,000 portraits from around the world and they found that these portraits often become the first line in a story that brings people together.


           Their process began simply, to ask a person to share a message about something or to someone they love. By the end of night you realize that through stories, there's actually much more that brings us together than what keeps us apart.
 

 

The Dear World photoshoot took place on Thursday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Adele's lounge. Over 200 people stopped by to share their story. Check out some of these portraits of the UMD community!
